Suddenly I see

"there was a man sitting in the elevator with me who knew exactly what he wanted and I found myself wishing I were as lucky as he." -You've got mail

This same phrase describes my situation yesterday, but the location wasn't an elevator, but a christmas bazaar, and there next to me sat the most driven girl I've ever seen in Egypt. She knows what she wants from life and she's out to get it. And then I remembered that phrase from the movie.
Here's a man like joe fox who has money, reputation and a growing business, yet he doesn't have self defenition which is the only thing that he longs for.
And I found myself wishing I was as lucky as She.
